Anna Duggar, 27, has been lying low ever since Josh Duggar’s scandals were exposed, but she’s ready to talk. In her first TV interview since news of his sex scandal broke, Anna reveals it was “heartbreaking” to hear about what Josh had done behind her back.
“It was heartbreaking to hear what had happened,” Anna says in the promo. Later, Anna is seen looking down and trying to hold back tears. Anna is clearly still a part of the family despite everything Josh has done. Jill Duggar even says that when all of this drama was happening, her thoughts turned to Anna.
Anna claims Josh had confessed to molesting young girls when he was just a teenager before they were even married. But she was completely caught off guard by his sex scandal. Josh confessed to cheating on Anna and a secret porn addiction in Aug. 2015.
Josh was accused of having sex with more than one porn star, and Anna had no idea Josh was betraying her. The devastating news was revealed just weeks after Anna gave birth to their fourth child. Josh later entered a “faith-based” rehab and has been there ever since.
Josh and Anna’s marriage is clearly on the rocks, and HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that Josh is pleading with Anna to have another baby to save their marriage. “Josh is so worried that Anna will leave him that he is now convinced she will stay if he can persuade her they should have another child together,” our source revealed.
The entire Duggar family was shocked by Josh’s scandals coming to light. Jill and Jessa admitted they were “angry and hurt” over what had happened, but they vowed to move forward. It looks like Anna is ready, too.
The first part of the Jill and Jessa: Counting On special premieres Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. ET on TLC. Catch up on 19 Kids & Counting by buying every season on Amazon now!
